In a May 14 tweet, the Democratic Socialist Ocasio-Cortez, who supports the BDS movement, said Israel’s killing of Palestinians along the Gaza border was a “massacre,” and that “no state or entity is absolved of mass shootings of protesters.” “There is no justification. Palestinian people deserve basic human dignity, as anyone else,” she said. “Democrats can’t be silent about this anymore.” Ocasio-Cortez’s thoughts are those of most progressives, but she seems more aligned with her Muslim counterparts.
This is old news but the constant attacks on Israel, our greatest friend and ally in the Middle East, is constantly under siege and some of this news bears repeating.
I was in Israel from May 12th through the 20th. What AOC fails to mention is during that time period Hamas launched 690 missiles from the Gaza strip into Tel Aviv. These missiles were meant to kill Israeli citizens. Israeli soldiers retaliated after the killing of innocent Israeli people. Hamas launches their attacks from areas that are heavily populated by Palestinians. Hamas rebels like the security of schools, hospitals and churches from which to launch rockets. Evidently, they think less of their women and children than Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez does.
It is not too amazing that one of the Squad thinks so little of Israel, after all on 9/11 simply, “something happened”. Ah yes, something also happened in Israel. A terrorist organization, Hamas, attacked Israel without provocation. An act of war. Perhaps the Palestinians in Gaza should move their schools, hospitals and churches to less populated areas, or better yet, get the rebels to launch their missiles from those unpopulated areas.
When the terrorists care about their women and children as much as they care about killing Israelis, perhaps there can be some semblance of peace. If all the terrorist groups against Israel would lay down their weapons, perhaps there would be no more war. If all Israelis laid down their weapons, there would be no more Israel.
